On Wednesday, the theme for 2018’s the Met Ball Gala was revealed and it is Fashion & The Catholic Imagination.
The unveiling served as a head scratcher for some when it first became known, but the Church has for decades been a constant source of fashion trends, from high collars, lace and other aspects that have been incorporated into the fashion cannon. (I see you, Madonna). As a former Catholic school girl, I’m psyched.
Each year, there is an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (one of my favorite museums in all of NYC) that accompanies the ball, and this one will pull items from the Vatican. This will be the largest exhibition to date.
Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace are hosting next year’s gala. We personally can’t wait to see where celebrities take the theme! And we’re hoping Jude Law shows up as Young Pope.
